Rihanna Taps ‘Anthemic Sound’ For New Album

Less than a year after releasing the #1 album ‘Talk That Talk’, Rihanna surprised fans when it emerged she had already enlisted writers to whip up its follow up.

Calling on the likes of Elijah Blake and Swedish House Mafia to help construct its sound, the Vita Coco belle also welcomed creative mastermind Claude Kelly to her writing camp during her stay in London back in June.

Now, he has spoken to our friends over at Kempire Radio about the LP’s anthemic feel- and what fans can expect from it as far as radio goes.

Details below…

Taking Riri’s vocal ‘limitations’ into consideration, here’s hoping this new album strikes the balance between ‘playing it safe’ and taking her sound to the next level.

By playing it safe- we mean sticking to the formula which saw ‘We Found Love’ and ‘Where Have You Been’ become global smashes,and by taking it to the next level…

If Rihanna succeeds in pushing thought provoking singles akin to ‘Drunk On Love‘ and Madonna’s‘s ‘Papa Don’t Preach’, there’s no reason- aside from those so so vocals- her stock as a global entity with heavy radio rotation shouldn’t sky rocket- and guarantee her that US #1 she’s been missing.

For, if a marked effort is made to craft cuts that work on a plethora of radio formats, there’s no telling how successful this project could be for both she and Roc Nation.

And on a visual tip?

        Rihanna is the executive producer of the fashion reality show. The 10-part series is hosted by Nicola Roberts and Vogue blogger Henry Holland, and features a group of aspiring designers competing against one another.

    If only her talent matched up with her work ethic…

      Rihanna a hard working artist..
      Making a name for yourself in the music business is hard enough in itself, but to make such a worldwide impression at a young age is a huge feat — yet something Rihanna seems to handle with ease. After making her professional musical debut back in 2005, this singer’s popularity has only continued to grow, earning her some of the biggest acknowledgments this generation of artists has ever seen. And she’s only 24 years old! Crazy, right? Accomplishing so much at such a young age definitely deserves some recognition, so in honor of Rihanna’s 24th birthday, here’s a look back at some of her biggest accomplishments in her career thus far. And at this rate, who knows where she’ll be by the age of 25! Sky’s the limit for this superstar.

      Named the Most Liked Celebrity on Facebook in 2011
      Sure every celebrity has a huge band of follows thanks to the overwhelming amount of social media sites these days, but Rihanna continues to be a standout among all the rest. As of now, the singer has 51,711,204 fans on Facebook, over three million more than Lady Gaga (48,128,783), and over eleven million more than the likes of Justin Bieber (40,507,655). But it is not only Rihanna’s Facebook page which garnered such extreme popularity on the site. Her “We Found Love” single featuring Calvin Harris was the most listened to song of 2011, beating singles from other singing sensations, including Katy Perry and Adele. A huge accomplishment to say the least.

      Ranked As One of Forbes Magazine’s Top-Earning Women in Music in 2011
      Though Gaga ranked the No. 1 spot on the list, grossing a whopping $90 million in profits, Rihanna managed to rake in a highly respectable $29 million for the year, earning her a well-deserved fifth place. She beat out the likes of Britney Spears ($10 million), Carrie Underwood ($20 million), and even Adele ($18 million), who received major praise last year for her hit album, 21. Adele may be Rolling in the Deep, but as of last year Rihanna was certainly rolling in the dough.

      Third Most Googled Celebrity Woman of 2011
      Thanks to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites we are able to stalk our favorite celebrities as fast and as often as we like. So who’s getting more cpms (clicks per minute)? Good old Google always has the answer and according to its results, Rihanna was ranked the third most Googled celebrity woman of last year. This is a praise certainly worth mentioning given that people resort to Google to search for basically everything, so the fact that Rihanna is one of the hottest topics among female celebs is definitely a commendable accomplishment. And again, it needs to be stressed that she’s only 24 years old! Is anyone else feeling extremely lazy right about now?

      Named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive in 2011
      Though her artistic accomplishments are impressive in and of themselves, Rihanna has also been praised for her looks as well as her talents. In October 2011, Esquire declared the singer the Sexiest Woman Alive for 2011, singling her out amid a number of other candidates. Sure you could see it as just one magazine’s opinion, but it’s definitely an honor any female celeb would be happy to receive. In a business where beautiful people are never in short supply, it’s definitely an accomplishment to be able to stand out among the rest and be acknowledged.

      Helped Guest Judge on The X Factor
      As most of the world already knows, Simon Cowell demands to work with the best and the brightest of talent. So when he decided to have Rihanna help judge which contestants should be eliminated at the Judges’ Homes, you know it means he trusts in her artistic opinion. Can you believe that? At the age of 24 she’s already earned professional praise from one of the most critical people in the music business. The fact that Simon’s deemed her talented enough to help find new talent proves that she really has “made it” in the industry. And given everything we’ve learned about her, she’s only just beginning.

      • Lax August 19, 2012

        Remember these are things you can find RIHANNA
        doing the same artist that many of you calls every negative name in the book. The same artist thay you calls ugly and is going to not do good in her career, the same artist that yo broke butts swears is on her way out of the buz because sh’s a doper and all of the other NEGATIVE paint brushes you tries to paint her with.

        The dirty little secret about people working for her
        and to those who want to try and undermind that system
        can sit their lazy asses around and pass judgement all they want to because Rih is focus and she love what has happened thus far in her life and she is going to work just as hard from now on to try and keep getting it right. Right about now from her and her teams outlook the sky is still the limit, folks.

      @KING-BREEZYONCE Rih says to you and those who think
      like you think the bey hive and her haters….
      I pay attention to what’s going on around me. I’m always looking for new energy, new talent, new voices. When you do that I think it’s easier to come up with fresh ideas. It’s not that my career has been based on surprising people, but it’s been about challenging myself — to constantly do new things that are going to broaden my own mind and in the process, hopefully, connect with other people.”
      The way she thinks about herself and the world around her she has already made it to that giant melting pot of
      super stars and now that she has paid into the system she have got time now to plan her work and work her plans, just like she want.

  6. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 19, 2012

    Love her or loathe her, she brings it with the music every time. She always collaborates with the best producers and songwriters, so I don’t doubt she’ll be bringing the heat yet again. That said, I’d like the album to be more in the vein of ‘RR’ as opposed to ‘Talk That Talk’ 2.0. ‘Rated R’ remains my favorite Rihanna album 🙂

    • Reality101 August 19, 2012

      LOVE RR…that aLbum came from a real place…

  7. mkigz August 19, 2012

    I honestly believe that Rihanna has a great voice – She just doesnt show case it a lot live – I personally believe that she performed her best vocally before rated r came out – during the first three albums she was consistent live. The most recent three albums that she has put out she has only performed well about 50% of the time. She needs to step up her game when it comes to the vocals. With that said Im not too sure about how I feel with album number 7 being released so soon after Talk That Talk – Even though there’s a world tour coming up next year I would have preferred an album some time next year. SMH – Here’s to hoping that the album will be great (which her albums always are) and to hoping that she puts a lot more effort into her live performances – there is no excuses 7 albums in!

      USMagazine, Sunday, August 19, 2012, 8:30am (PDT)
      Rihanna will never forget her first love, no matter how tragically — and suddenly — their relationship ended.
      During her appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter (airing August 19), the 24-year-old singer tells host Oprah Winfrey, 58, that ex Chris Brown, 23, will always have a place in her heart.
      “I am reminded by a lot of things. A lot of good memories we had,” Rihanna says of Brown. “By the slightest things: hotel rooms, tour venues. Any little thing: music, songs. And I do miss him at times.”

  11. Lax August 19, 2012

    Rihanna and navy what ever happens, keep thinking like this….
    I am the architect of my destiny. I am in charge. I bring that to me, or I push that away. You can no longer blame other people for things that happened to you. The other is that there is order in the universe, even though it looks like chaos. We separate the world into categories: this is good and this is bad. But life is set up to trick us. It’s a series of illusions we invest in. And ultimately those investments don’t serve our understanding, because physicality is always going to let you down, because physicality doesn’t last.”

        to do the collab. with Chris many was pissy
        but i though why not it’s her life and her past
        not mine. Of course i went with the flow i had
        to and also i do believe that God do forgive us
        and who am i to say this are that about Chris
        Now mind you it was Rihanna who got the Beat
        Down, but i RESPECT her enough to let it go if
        that’s what she wanted to do and i have had to
        control myself from calling Chris names and
        trying to MUDDY the water for him, but yo ass
        acts like you are bitter because chris and rih
        used to be a item, and as far as her Talking
        about what happened to her with Oprah that is still Rihanna business. And just so you’d know i hope
        this is it, okay.
        Therefore keep name calling Rihanna and keep
        trying to bash and beat her wheels off BLAME it
        all on her Keep telling yo SCUM BAG a new word
        i have found that seems to name yo type to a “TEE”
        is still in the year 2009 and trying to make me and
        others think that Rihanna started the fight and them
        beat her own ass, Boo, Boo it’s the past and as far as
        me, you, her haters and the navy is concerned it happened
        to her Oprah was asking the question and Rihanna who
        is/was the last time i CHECKED a full grown ass woman and since yo ass always calling her ho’s and other names to describe just how SASSSSSSSSY she really just don’t let yo ass forget that in yo own words she’s as far as she is because she ius using what happen to get ahead well guess what she’s Rihanna she took the “Ass Beating” and the beating in her Face THEREFORE RIHANNA has a right as far as yo Scum Bag ass goes “To Talk About It” all she dam well pleases and if you and others don’t like it then do something about it.

    Rihanna’s voice is not overally nasal (britney spears) it does not break constantly (Katy perry) and it is has a sweet tone to it when used properly. Its not THAT hard to make her sound good.

    One of her instagram fans asked her for Rated R 2.0 and she said she was “considering it”. Hope she does it.

    • Gilberto August 19, 2012

      Rihanna doesn’t have any control over her albums. Def Jam tells the producers and songwriters the direction they want. After the massive flop of Talk That Flop, I bet her next album is going to be full of (generic) dance songs. Wait and see.

      • Benron (King Of The Navy) August 19, 2012

        Yes, she does, read my next album.

  18. Benron (King Of The Navy) August 19, 2012

    Think of Rihanna’s career purpose like a manager/DIRECTOR. She co-writes but for the most part she just tells everyone what to do. She DIRECTS them what kind of pictures to take for promotio. SHE DIRECTS them what kind of songs to write. She MANAGES which songs make it on the album and which don’t. She does decide the name (Talk That Talk) and choses the cover (from the pictures she directed). Even all her music videos get run by her.

    This “puppet” thing isn’t cute when all other artist have the same or less input, maybe a little more if they actually write all their songs but since their are PROFESSIONAL SONGWRITERS, she may use them.

    Okay @ lax your posting the longest comments non stop with all the back and forth she probably has 12 comments from diffrent people. But I read ( I’m not trying to hate but u make me wanna cause MY faves r so much better than Rihanna but whatever) on a blog ” is the reason 4 Rihanna not having a number 1 album cause she releases an album every year or should she trying every couple if years like some other artist. This might mean people r more ” thirsty” for her and her music etc” What do u think lax because I’m starting 2 think out of u n benron u r the biggest Rihanna Stan. Y’all both hate on any other artist sometimes underground but I think I might stop reading comments cause they r pushing me away from her n that isn’t right. Reason being one person said everything Sam critizes her in talent and vocals she slaves your faves. Gurl bye I know about 5 underground artist or not as well know that’ll slay her in vocal right of the top of my head. It irritates me how people always compare here to other artists that r miles ahead of her and here’s the thing: all y’all say is she got whole lotta number ones. So that has nothing 2 do with TALENT. Talent is either ( if your an artist) singing . Well IMO u should have a at least good voice. Dancing and performing i mean getting on that stage u should be owning it Rihanna just walks back and forth giving u bad vocals and I do think Rihanna can sIng just breathes through her nose n stuff she needs lessons in techniques of breathing maybe it’ll then come out right. Oh yeah. @benron and lax I’m so SICK of u acting like Rihanna is this great singer dancer and performer. Rihanna isn’t horrible live…well sometimes can’t dance ( she danced one time in a video which wasn’t like real coreaography just shaking stiffly) n she KNOWN for being a bad performer. So tell me as an ARTIST what is great bout Rihanna. What talent does Rihanna have besides number 1s which some aren’t that good I liked hard n umbrella Pom de replay n that’s about it n talk that talk cause their urban itself 4 pon de replay. So without bashing or comparing or talking about any other artist tell me y Rihanna is the best because u seem 2 believe that from all these negative post u make about diffrent artist. N u can’t talk about record sales number 1s etc. just talent because record sales don’t prove anything about the quality of the music. So talk about all her talent n overall things great about her as an artist. The only thing I can say is back in gggb n rated r days she had some style. But that’s not talent but u can say stuff like that 2. But no sales n charts cause they prove nothing about u as an ARTIST or the QUALITY of your music. Tell y her music n performing is great n singing u can even send me some links I promise to watch them and give an honest opinion!

      Rihanna was all smiles upon her arrival in Tokyo on Thursday. The pop princess was decked out in a black Versace T-shirt, green leather jacket, jeans, and Gucci purse as she made her way through Narita International Airport. She will headline the Summer Sonic Festival in Tokyo on Saturday and Osaka on Sunday. The two-day concert extravaganza also features performances from Pitbull, Azealia Banks, Ke$ha, Mac Miller, Nelly Furtado, and more.

      RiRi turned her trip into a family affair, bringing her father along with her. “Me and pops spent his entire bday on the plane!!! SMH!!” tweeted the singer, who is nominated five times at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

      Her fashion reality show “Styled to Rock” premiered this week in the U.K. and she has been working on a new album, but no release date has been set.
      Keep trying to shyt talk her career, and try and lie to yo self
      saying she’s a “Nobody” because the world knows a different and more compelling truth that they can see clearly in Rihanna and her work around the globe.

      But you are now considered a hater. I will admit that I liked GGGB. That was her best CD – really her only memorable CD if you ask me. Unfortunately, every CD she has produced after that effort has just been generic. I think she is being forced to produce music in volume so that the POWERS THAT BE who control her career can recoup their large investment.

I read you often saying that the incident is what made her a super, some more dah, dah, dah anywhoo, its fun Reading you and others who are always trying to take rihanna’s head all the way off..and you are doing that to a working chick i wonder what would it be like if Rihanna’s ass was lazy as Hell.

  21. JAKE (I JUDGE FLOPS & PRAISE TALENT = DEAL WITH IT B****) August 19, 2012


    An “Anthemic Sound” huh?

    I’m sorry, but in order to create a sound in music, that is “Anthemic”, you need both the producers, composers and THE VOCALIST/PERFORMER of the song to be a part of the piece. Everybody know that, despite how “ENTERTAINING” Ms. Fenty may be, she is NOT a vocalist and because of this, I can already see the state of the album now:


    Why doesn’t 21st century Pop music, and 21st century pop producers, do something different for once?

    Why not combine LIVE INSTRUMENTATION WITH ELECTRIC INSTRUMENTATION instead like Pop music of the 1970’s and 1980’s did? Now, because technology has grown so much, nobody wants to create a masterpiece anymore – all they want is the quick hits!!! Thats why Adele’s 21 sold so much. Forget her voice, THE MUSIC SHE MADE WAS MUSIC. AND HER MUSIC WAS JUST AS “POP-INFLUENCED” AND IT BECAME ANTHEMIC, so lets not use anything else as an excuse. UGH.


    • Benron (King Of The Navy) August 19, 2012

      Everything you said was false, and shows that you have only paid attention to talk that talk, not Rihanna’s previous albums. Rated R is MUCH better than 21, heck loud is better than 21.

      “Adele” Is only successful because of hype, she is a mediocre at best watered down version of a soul singer who can not entertain. This is VISUALLY and SONICALLY, her voice is ok in the way she uses it but Rihanna’s voice is much better because it is infectious, charismatic and intresting. Adele has one octave, and sings her monotone version of it throughout every single song, whenever she tries to go higher we have to bear through another one of her 1,000 voice cracks because she has no singing ability other than basic hiding the horrible qualities of her voice.

      But (Taking a page from MOBWIFES book) since the “media” pushes her forth as the best thing since sliced bread because she rants on in vague stories and analogies that make NO sense everyone buys her s***. How else would Gaga, Taylor swift and other barely above average white girls have success without the media.

      • JAKE (I JUDGE FLOPS & PRAISE TALENT = DEAL WITH IT B****) August 19, 2012



        There were several FALSE facts you pointed out:

        Adele has a “ONE” octave vocal Range? Rihanna’s Studio Vocal spans from A2 to C5, which means that her vocal range crosses almost 2.0 octaves – WITH AUTO-TUNE. HER LIVE VOCAL RANGE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A CLASSIFICATION BECAUSE SHE CAN’T SING LIVE. Adele’s Studio Vocal Range spans from C3 to D7 which means that her vocal range crosses almost 2.9 – 3.0 Octaves, not to mention that she has hit an #F5 in a Set Fire To The Rain Live performance, SO ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY THAT RIHANNA IS A BETER SINGER THAN ADELE?


        Now, don’t get me wrong: ADELE IS AND WAS HYPED UP. But, whichever you put it, people embraced her because her sound was different and her music was emotional and classic but at the same time appealing and mainstream. In no way is Adele the best soul singer I’ve ever heard, hell F****** no – AMY WAS A HELL OF A BETTER SOUL SINGER THAN HER, but something about her music is and was different.

Now if you had your rathers wouldn’t you much rather be a millionaire s*** or w**** than to be a Hood Rat W**** or s***, you feel me. Rihanna is the best of the best and even if she did fit any of the cazillion of bad, nasety names she was called shes still the best of the best. So many of you Pimps, whores and s**** don’t seem to be doing so good After Hoeing all of these years you or still in the same f,,,,,g rut that you started out in. Rihanna has gone from Barbados to the United Stakes and shes a House Hold name now “Rihanna” Is heard all around the world. And even when she has been out of the Country for weeks and months her name still stays on your hood & Project lips. You could say that ririr is the one who got away. Many or so mad and salty because of her Success, because she has of late been named right up there at the top with the Biggest in the Entertainment Industry. And thank goodness the Jokers did not have to be the ones who or singing her prasies as of yet its the Very Higher Ups, whoi really Count the most. All eyes or on her and they or really paying a lot of Attention to rihanna as of late, because her star power is shinning so Bright for all to see from Sea To Shinning Sea, Just how mad or you about that you Jockers? Yep just as i figured you or really mad, mad about rihannas success and how she keeps her audiums Entertained to the Max. Shes always in the News all over the World Big Time. While Entertaining in Europe shes also raising sand in the United States too. Even some of the most Heavy Hitters In the entertainment industry or taking notice. And you know shes doing great when many keeps cursing her out on the Internet trying to Hurt her Fellings,hahahahahaaaaaa So funny. Jumping in and out of Traffic to take a punch at Rihanna the cream of the Crop in the Entertainment Industry. A Bright star whos bright shine is Captivating to say the least. And now that shes so Huge they or trying everything their little Small Brains can think of to try and Stop her from shi ning so Bright that bright shine has screwed up many of their brain waves because of all of the cob webs in their heads. Many of their heads or blocked by cob webs and debre, trash left from so many years of Whoring and being a S*** in that Hood rat Project. Rihanna might not ever be the best in the game, but she is surely all up in the game. Rihanna may not ever be the best paid or make the biggest paycheck but thats okay shes still in the game. Rihanna may be called s***, w****, can’t sing or perform great, but shes still Headlining her own Tour at 23 Years Old, traveling the World with some of the biggest Billionaire Companys Sponsoring her Tour Ever. Back in the day when Janet was Paid 80Million by a record label i saw where Richard Branson stated that Janet bought R Island where her lives and to this day Janet has been doing her own thing even though her brothers were performers also and mj is the King of Pop and that never stopped Janet from Loving him and her brothers all My point i am making is that Rihanna did not have a Platform she had people who gave her a chance and she has taken the Wheel and shes the Driving Force behind her rise to Stardom and theres not a dam thing you cHicken heads can do about it but tslk ish, end of story, true life and the rise of even Bigger and Better Things for Rihanna to Add to her Bage of ACCOMPLISHMENTS & ACCOLADES, WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT, HOOD RATS & INTERNET BULLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    whether you guys admit it or not you will be checking for her whenever she releases anything.

    also if rihanna was just a puppet and had no input, then speaking theoretically roc could of made anybody else into a superstar like rihanna, so why have they not done it? Obviously its just the writers and producers that make rihanna into who she is so why then has there not been anybody else to do the same as rihanna, several other artist have used the same writers and producers yet have not gotten the same result?

However, there is no denying that this album she brings will get #1 hits because no one can stop the buying power of Rihanna’s dumb puppets. When Rihanna says buy her puppets buy. To conclude, Rihanna doesn’t write her songs sadly so all she gonna be doing at the writing camp is lay down, watch the writers and producers do their thing, take some d***, then put her dying cat vocals to work.

    If Rihanna plans to release it this year she’s only setting herself up for major embarrassment with the likes of Christina, Pink, Brandy, etc…all making huge comebacks.

    I know Rihanna releases new music every year because she’s contracted to release a certain amount of albums within a certain amount of time with her label but for real slow your s*** down and take your time for once. If Rihanna had more creative control over the whole process of her music, I’d have more respect for her as a singer. She’s not an artist. An artist is somebody who writes their own music, is involved with the album from beginning to finish and takes more than just 1 day making the album. The fact that Rihanna has to release music every year just proves how she has to continue to shove her s*** in our ears just to stay relevant because the second she takes a break, people will move on.

      She has input, she just doesent write, not writing doesent mean s***.

      Rihanna definitely has input in her albums

      and releasing an album every year, why is that a problem? thats her job!

      Prince use to release albums sometimes TWICE a year….

    I see Rhianna’s team is following same footsteps of Brandy trying to promote her upcoming album on Kempire radio which promotes alot of underground artists. RiRi is trying to reach the black audience. Yeah that was shade.

    Rihanna could release the best album ever crafted but Samantha and the Flop-Hive would still find a reason to hate.

    Claude Kelly said it well, Rihanna is a universal megastar at this point and her star power speaks for itself. I cannot wait for the new album because it is going to slay hard so you all better warn your favs to buy that extra strong super glue for their wigs, weaves, lace-fronts and that extra potent color for their hair dyes because Riri is coming to snatch.

    Adele aint no soul Singer SMH Soul is Anita Baker,Tony Braxton and Aretha Franklin.Even though I can’t stand Rihanna she is better than Adele.I see nothing special about her.OK her voice is unique but what else. 21 was overrated.Rated R was better than 21 and deserve more credit.

    I can NOT wait for this album……RihannaNavi we are so fukin spoiled. We get a new album at least every year….I dont think this album will be released this year though, probably early 2013 which is perfect and surely she’ll get “THEE #1 Album”

    People act as if Rihanna cant get a #1 album….Thats not the problem, its all in timing + #1 albums dont necessarily mean a hit album, Rihanna’s albums continue to sell over time and not just for a week which is wayyyy better.

    So hopefully this next album is everything and more….Im still waiting on an album similar to GGGB’s edgy fierceness.

    p.s that Rebelle Fleur commercial was everything, SOOO mad Ive never seen it on Television.

    Oops, haven’t been here in a minute I almost missed this post on the first page. I think that Rita Bore ra sticky post at the top was enough to keep me away, phew! I have rarely agreed with u on ANYTHING RIhanna on this site but for once I do when u mention about the visual tip up there. I couldn’t agree with u more.
